This large, sun tolerant ornamental bromeliad can grow to 1.2 metres high. The foliage can range from green, to orange to red depending on the clone, and will develop its best vibrant colours in sufficient sunlight. The large flower spike can reach 1.5m bearing long lasting masses of red and yellow flowers and purple berries. The orange and yellow varieties prefer full sun while the green variety prefers partial sun.
This large-leafed stunner can grow a metre tall and a metre wide. It has thick, leathery leaves with rich, chocolate brown tones and creamy green bands. The leaves tend to arch more and intensify in colour with age, making it a great specimen plant for patios or decks partially shaded from the sun. Prefers partial shade. This is cross between original fosteriana rubra and red chestnut which is equally beautiful.
A medium to large sized brom with striking, patterned leaves and shiny, flaming red, branched inflorescences. The leaves are light green with a striking, reddish brown banding, and can grow to 250cm long and 45cm wide. The flowers have orange red petals. Prefers bright, indirect light and humidity.
A classic cross between the considerably darker, burgundy variety with the dark burgundy-purple floral bract and the brighter, red variety with the red branching bract that could give either colour, or in some cases, a mix of colours. A beautiful specimen, either ways.
A large rosette of 50-75cm with an interesting pattern, the broad mottled green leaves have spiny edges and silvery scales on the underside. The inflorescence consists of compact, white flowers surrounded by purplish-pink bracts. Requires warmth, shade, and frequent spraying in dry periods.
Purplish black in bright light, this large bromeliad spans a meter when mature. Its meter long spike has black bracts bearing off-white flowers, creating vivid contrasts and making it a great accent plant. Prefers semi-shade to dappled bright light; the amount of light influences foliage colour.
